Jadon Sancho could be handed a lifeline to resurrect his career in Spain as Barcelona are considering making a bid to sign the disgruntled Manchester United winger on loan.

The 23-year-old forward’s dream move to Old Trafford has suddenly turned into a nightmare after a falling out with manager Erik ten Hag, which has seen him banished from the first-team squad.

According to Sport Bible, Barcelona wants to take advantage of Sancho’s current situation at Manchester United as Xavi is looking to snap up high-profile signings at a bargain price.

The Catalans hope the market will again offer them players during the January transfer window, as it did in the summer when they signed Joao Cancelo and Joao Felix, who were having issues at their previous clubs.

Due to the club's terrible financial circumstances, Barcelona is said to be forced to think outside the box when it comes to transfers.

Why Sancho is refusing to apologise to Ten Hag

Meanwhile, Jadon Sancho believes that apologising to Erik ten Hag now and admitting the Manchester United boss was correct would undercut his decision to go public with his thoughts.

The 23-year-old winger has been exiled from all first-team facilities at United's Carrington training ground and is not even allowed to mingle with his teammates in the dining room after a fallout with Ten Hag, per Daily Mirror.

Sancho stirred controversy, forcing Man United to banish him from the first team after refusing to apologise to Ten Hag following his social media statement in the wake of his omission from the Premier League loss against Arsenal.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Jadon Sancho appears to be going through it all amid his public spat with Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag and now seems to have drastic action on social media.

The United coach called out Sancho for his 'poor training attitude' after he was dropped from the matchday squad for the 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

The Englishman responded with a public statement on Twitter debunking Erik ten Hag's claims about his training ethic, which appeared to lead to a first-team suspension.
